Real-World Direct3D Benchmarks

 

Max Payne

 

Max Payne is a new generation DirectX 7/8 game. This game is based on Hardware T&L advancements as well as many other features of the Intel Pentium 4 and Athlon XP.

 

 

Again no great improvements shown with DDR-400 over DDR-333 on AMD.

 

Aquanox

 

Aquanox is the latest installment of our benchmark software. This game is based heavily on DirectX 8 and 8.1 advancements and is designed to stress video cards to their ultimate limit, in all the best D3D benchmark to date.

 

 

Aquanox does have a high memory bandwidth requirement so it gets a slight boost over the DDR-333 results.

 

DroneZmark

 

DroneZmark is based on the popular DroneZ game engine. DroneZmark incorporates a looping demo and execution engine to test your system performance.

 

 

DroneZmark shows identical scores for DDR-333 compared to DDR-400. Here, that extra bandwidth is just going to waste.
